Corked bottle poured into Chimay chalice 2010 vintage

A: dark straw colored good clarity lively carbonation

S: lots of wood barrel and vinegar maybe a little hay

T: bursts onto your tongue with a lot of oak and vinegar with a little underlying sweetness that is there then gone and a nice sour finish

M: Bubbly light body does not linger much on the tongue pretty clean finish

O: I'm not a wine drinker so maybe I can't appreciate this style it's just over carbonated vinegary sourness. it is refreshing but I do not look for these.

2010 vintage. Pours cloudy burnt orange with big fizzy white head that seems unstable but does take a bit to recede.

Wet hay, tart lemons, mushrooms, and oak. Grassy and perhaps a bit of oxidation. Lots of barnyard. Seems funkier than other Boon products I've had, including other Mariage Parfaits. A hint of sweetness. Some pineapple notes as well.

Tart upfront giving way to oak and funk. Doesn't seem as complex as the nose. Very nice and fruity though. Definite evidence of the higher gravity. Tropical fruit along with lemons and lactic acid. A hint of acetic, but within reason. Oak character is present, but not particularly tannic.

Highly carbonated, but with a good amount of body for a gueuze. Heavier on the palate with the higher gravity. Quite dry but there's an impression of sweetness from fruity esters.

Drinkable and complex, but the higher gravity makes it a little less quaffable. Not my go-to lambic producer, but still very nice.

Awesome, easy to find, fairly priced. Drinking a 2010 in a teku.

L- Nice light orange gold with an airy but full white head. Looks great in a teku, adds some extra depth to the color because its so wide.

A- Horse blanket, must, rotted wood, acidity, notes of sweet over-ripe berries and light lemon zest. Great aroma, the brett definitely comes through more with age, some of the newer bottles I've had are more fresh and fruity.

T- Starts slightly sweet, with notes of stone fruit, but the acidity comes through nicely in the middle. Oaky and slightly tannic at the end. Nice sweet and sour aftertaste.

M- Nicely balanced mouthfeel, not too dry but definitely not sweet. Fizzy geuze carbonation, but not soda-like.

O- You can see why they call it mariage parfait. This beer is an amazingly balanced geuze. Very approachable because of how nicely balanced it is but also still amazing and delicious for people who love sour bombs or are more experienced with geuzes.
